Darjeeling Toy TrainDec 05 2007

The eponymous train of Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited is fictional, but loosely based on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, nicknamed the "Toy Train." Photos found on flickr reveal a color palette as lush as that of the movie.

A short clip from the 1995 National Geographic documentary The Great Indian Railway can be found here.
